Not a Slave to what's in fashion.....

“A true Christian must not be a slave to what’s currently ‘in-fashion,’ if he wants to train his child for heaven. He must not be content to teach them and instruct them in certain ways, merely because it is customary, or to allow them to read books of a questionable sort, merely because everybody else reads them, or to let them form bad habits, merely because they are the habits of the day.
 He must train with an eye to his children’s souls.

 He must not be ashamed to hear his training called odd and strange. What if it is? The time is short—the customs of this world are passing away. He that has trained his children for heaven, rather than for the earth—for God, rather than for man—he is the parent that will be called wise in the end.”

-J.C. Ryle, The Duties of Parents
(19th century preacher)

Oh so true. A Wise Woman Builds Her Home, is by far one of my favorite new found blogs. It's inspiring, and educational all in one!

This quote is so true, and maybe has even more meaning as I have been led to wear skirts/dresses, and am trying to train my daughters to do the same.
